    I wrote my own bot using Tumblr's API. I am trying to follow users who share an interest. However, after a few follows, I get "Rate Limit Exceeded."

    Googling around, it looks like non-bot Tumblr users are getting this as well. There's an even a Tumblr blog devoted to it.

    Just wondering if any of you are seeing the same thing and if you have a workaround.

    Congratulations!

    Your thread made it to page 1 for the search term: rate limit exceeded tumblr

    EDIT: I should add that I default to 100 results so more like page 2 with 10 results.
